"The Left" is a single, solid entity that "glamorizes" Weather Underground to the same extent that "The Right" is a single, solid entity that "glamorizes" Nixon stalling Vietnamese peace talks with Johnson so that he could get elected, or Reagan working with Iran to delay the release of the hostages so he could get elected, then funding rightwing Honduran death squads that raped and murdered nuns, or Bush I coordinating Iran-Contra, or Bush II sending 4000 troops to die in the defense of Big Oil.

Fart_Machine: BojanglesPaladin: Also, I'm reasonably certain that Columbia receives a fair amount of Federal funds

It's a private university so unless her position deals with research there isn't any federal funding going towards it.


Minus the whole student loan thingies.

it probably wouldn't be a big deal if she was teaching Math or biology or something to that effect but the fact that Columbia lists her as some social justice advocate is somewhat unnerving.  Kind of like having Jeffrey Dahmer being your culinary arts professor.

Mrbogey: Silly Jesus: But Fark has informed me that there are no left wing terrorists, only right wing.

Fark lies? My whole world has just collapsed.

It'd be neat if they could not act so reflexively and admit it's a farked up situation and she shouldn't have gotten the job.

But no... "Sarah Palin!!!" or something...


Did you really just agree unironically with an admitted troll?

I wonder what the intersection is between people who are worried about "former terrorists shouldn't be teaching our [college-aged, impressionable] children" and those who feel that Dzhokar Tsarnaev couldn't possibly have been unduly influenced by his older brother because "he was an adult, he was fully capable of knowing better."

From the FB comments of seen posted by various people I know, or their friends, I suspect there's significant overlap. Can't have it both ways, folks.

/btw, Ivies are all about having famous people on faculty - it's a major draw for the well-to-do
//administrative memory at Columbia seems to fail after about 3 years so not at all surprised that past events (planned or carried out) are of little consideration

So by all means protest the students since they get the loan.

Twenty years in jail, and 10 years since parole proving to be a model citizen. If Tsarnaev can do the same thing, I'll buy him a drink myself ...in 2043.

The end recipient of that money is the school, which could never peddle its product in a fair market.  Charge astronomical amounts of money for a product society needs and government loans their customers money at rates and terms private banks never could.  The only person who gets screwed is the student - who gets an education that is deviating further and further from what the market is demanding, at a cost of 3-4X the rate of inflation.

But everyone gets "access" to the same crap.  Expensive access but access nonetheless.  so there's that.
